John Krasinski has announced that ‘A Quiet Place 2’ has wrapped. On Twitter, he shared a photo of himself and his real-life wife Emily Blunt, who starred in both films, walking hand-in-hand on a bridge that should be familiar to anyone who has seen the first. He captioned the pic, “Well… that’s a wrap on #PartII See you on March 20th!”

The first ‘A Quiet Place’ was originally written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, but Krasinski helped refine it before shooting it as his film directorial debut. He wrote the sequel all by himself and obviously directed it as well. Blunt returns as Evelyn Abbott, one of the very few survivors on Earth after an invasion by blind carnivorous monsters that are attracted to sound. Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are back as the Abbotts’ kids, Regan and Marcus.
The first movie showed that there were other survivors out there, as they all lit fires at dusk to signal that they were still alive. ‘A Quiet Place 2’ introduces two of them, played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou. In fact, looking at the IMDB page for this movie, there are quite a number of cast members this time around. It was previously teased that this sequel would also serve as a little bit of a prequel, so we may meet more survivors as well as a few other… meals.
Previously, Brian Tyree Henry (who had to drop out of the film due to a scheduling conflict) revealed:
“We’ll see more of that family continuing to survive and finding out that they’re not the only ones. And I think that we’re also going to get a few answers to the origin of where and how this whole thing happened. I think that people want to know that. But I think you’re just going to see another side of it…more of humanity that survived this thing in this next story.”
‘A Quiet Place’ was a surprise breakout smash last year. Will lightning strike twice, making ‘A Quiet Place 2’ just as big a hit? Guess we’ll find out on March 20 of next year.
